Traffic Barriers for Corporate Security  

 

 A to Z of Traffic Barrier Control Systems

What am I looking for?

A: Vehicle barriers are designed to block roadways to thwart vehicle-based attacks.

There are two main categories — permanent or temporary — and they function exactly as the names imply.

 

Permanent barriers have a below-grade steel substructure that is cemented in place, as well as above grade Model

They provide continuous protection at a single location.

 Types include:

Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side.

They are sometimes called Plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle.

A barrier is actually a wedge type, though its open, see-through design and energy-absorbing band technology makes it a much more aesthetic solution.

Gater model beam barrier

 

Beam barriers use a beam extending across the road. Usually the beam swings vertically to allow the vehicle to pass, but horizontal swinging versions and telescoping beams are also available. Some vertical swing designs require a massive steel counterweight (many thousands of pounds) to balance the beam, and a large capacity hydraulic system to move the beam.

 

 

Model vertical pivot lift barrier uses a spring-balanced aluminum beam (with internal energy-absorbing bands) and requires only a 24-volt DC electric operator. Sometimes beam barriers will have a fence section attached to restrict pedestrian traffic. The fence can be either ornamental or a high-security, anti-climb design. We offer our  model barrier with this fence option

 

   

  NMSB XII revolutionizes Drop Arm Crash Beam design. The highest security crash beam available worldwide, the NMSB XII has received the DoS K12/L3 or 15,000 lbs. at 50 mph crash certification with remarkable results. The NMSB XII can be hydraulically and/or manually, counter-balance operated.

 fortified, "sling-shot" concept Drop Arm barrier system design, are an ideal stopping mechanism for maximum perimeter security. After crash impact, the test vehicle was propelled backwards up to 6 ft.

The US State Department representative on site to witness and certify the test results stated that the test was one of the most remarkable DoS had ever witnessed. The successful test further demonstrates WE Barrier's dedication to continued product innovation and leadership in crash barrier engineering and quality. WE offers other engineer rated Drop Arm Crash Beam barrier systems. The NMSB XIIA1 Drop Arm (crash-beam) barrier is for intermediate-threat security facilities. The NMSB XIIA1 is a choice addition for commercial application. The NMSB XIIa1 is crash tested and engineer rated meeting DoS K4/L3 standards to stop a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling at 30 mph.

Drop Arm barrier operation overcomes terrain issues due to snowplows or other roadway obstacles. Its optimal operation as a "sally-port" system to operate in unison with NBI's
steel-plate or bollard barriers creates a virtually impenetrable, stoppage and trapping configuration. The standard barrier opening lengths range from 12'-16', 16'-19', and 20'-22'. In the down and secure position the top of the barrier is 33" (83.8 cm) above the road surface. Hot-dip galvanized for years of service. EPA approved self-contained attached housing unit. Drop Arms lower cycle / hour operating systems are best suited for minimal vehicle-traffic, access-control scenarios. Standard barrier deployment time is 8-15 seconds per cycle depending on varying barrier size. Vertical or horizontal open/close options as well as custom sizes and configurations are available.

 

 

Arrestor model wedge barrier

 Wedge barriers get their name because of their wedge shape when viewed from the side.

They are sometimes called plate barriers because the most common type uses a steel plate angled toward the approaching vehicle.

 

 The B-Cube Bollard Assembly

   The B-Cube Bollards in Faux Marble and Granite FinishesThe B-Cube in Ground

 

The B3 system consists of four components: 

  1. An in-ground socket into which the bollard is inserted

  2. A family of bollards with different vehicle stopping power ratings, all of which fit into this same standard socket.

  3. A cover plate for the socket if no bollard is installed

  4. A trim ring to finish off the top of the socket when a bollard is in place.

Here are some of the typical ways you might use the B3 system:

 

Bollards are vertical cylinders. The name derives from the large cylinders used on wharves to tie down ships, and comes from an old English word for tree trunk. Retractable bollards are used to block roadways, whereas fixed bollards are widely used for perimeter security around a facility. We offer bollards in a range of stopping powers, plus we have a unique design called the B3 ("B-Cube") for which the vehicle stopping power can be upgraded without excavation and replacement.

 

The B3 (pronounced "B-Cube" and standing for "Basic Bollard Barrier")  is a low cost, yet aesthetic perimeter security system that can be installed in phases as budget and security requirements evolve. The B3 is what is called a passive (rather than active) vehicle barrier. That is, it does not retract into the ground to allow vehicles to pass. Thus, the B3 is not suitable for vehicle roadways or entrances requiring frequent vehicle passage. Instead, we developed the B3 for one or more of the following circumstances:

Plate Barrier

 

Temporary Barriers — which rest on the road surface — are designed to be set up and removed quickly.

They can be set up at any location and are usually used for extra security at high-profile events or during a threat escalation. Types include:

Mobile barriers are self-contained trailers licensed for over-the-road travel, that can be pulled by a heavy-duty pickup truck. The barrier is moved into position across a roadway, the axle and wheels disengage, and the barrier is lowered onto the roadbed. These barriers can be operated manually, powered by an electrical umbilical, or powered from a self-contained electrical generator or solar array.

Portable barriers are essentially identical to mobile barriers, except they do not have wheels and are not configured as over-the-road trailers. They are typically trucked to their deployment site and then placed on the roadbed using a forklift or mobile crane.   The model pictured above is a very low cost portable barrier that can be set up by one person in minutes and requires no heavy lifting equipment. It can be used as either a roadway barrier or a perimeter barrier.

Semi-Permanent barriers straddle the definition between permanent and temporary. They are delivered to the site and then anchored. Some types are built on large steel plates that bolt to the road surface. Others have massive housings on each end that are filled with concrete, sand, or other material. They are temporary in the sense they can be removed without major roadway excavation. However, they lack the major advantage of temporary barriers: rapid setup and takedown in response to changing security conditions.

 

 

 

Once positioned, the new MP-5000 Crash Barrier mobile barricade is separated from its transporter and lowered into position by means of a Battery-Operated Hydraulic Power System, which is then used to raise or lower the barrier for normal or emergency tasks.

The controls to run the barrier can be located on the barrier, at a fixed secure post, or from a hand-held push button controller.

The guard need not go to the barrier to raise or lower it from its guard position.

Within 15 minutes of being sited, the new MP-5000 Crash Barrier mobile crash barrier lowers itself into position with built-in hydraulic jacks.

There is no hand cranking.
